Hi ramit , I am having a swift and i want to upgrade its tyre size - so should i only upgrade the tyres or should i upgrade the tyres and suspension too ?

Hi Atul,

If you are using Swift LXI/LDI or VXI/VDI variants, then the stock tyre size would be 165/80 R14. Plausible upsizes to this are 175/80 R14 and 195/ 70 R14. If you go for 195 then you might experience bumpy ride quality, heavier steering and a slight drop in the fuel efficiency.

In case you are using ZXI/ZDI variants, then the stock tyre size is 185/65 R15 and plausible upsize would be 195/65 R15.

You do not have to make any upgrades to the suspension system. General benefits of upsize include improved road grip and efficient braking.

Hi I've a swift vxi 2014 model. Oem tyre size is 165/80/r14. Is it possible to upgrade to 185/70/r14. Will there be any safety issues and downside if any. Also does it affect the speedo and odo accuracy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Yossarian,

Yes, you can very well upsize to tyres of size 185/70 R14. This will help your vehicle get better road grip and more efficient braking. This is very beneficail if you go over long highway drives or are an aggressive driver.

However, the ride quality could get a little bumpy and the odometer reading would go slightly off, as in would show a few kms more than actual. The impact on fuel efficiency will be negligible.

In the year 1965, they first launched its export operations to Thailand, which was worth USD 7700. After almost a decade, in the year 1975, it developed tyres for several aircrafts. In the following year, it had exceeded a whopping 1 million units annual production in Korea. In its journey since inception, the tyre maker achieved several awards and ISO certifications. At the same time, it was also ranked as No.1 in Korea's Customer Satisfaction Index (KCSI) from 2009 till date. Headquartered in Gwangju, South Korea, this firm manufacturers a wide range of tyres under its Kumho brand. At present, it has a total of three research and development centers located in Korea, USA and England. Besides Korea, it has three manufacturing facilities in China and one unit located in Binh Duong province, Vietnam. Currently, it has an annual revenue of over USD 3.57 billion and a net income of over USD 104.87 million. With a work force of over 5000 employees, Kumho produces Original Equipment (OE) tyres for various automobile companies like Renault Samsung, Ssangyong, MINI, Ford, Hyundai and others.
 
Sponsorships:

Dealership Network in India:
 
At present, the manufacturer has only one dealership in India. This outlet is located in Noida, Uttar Pradesh and they import and distribute these tyres all across the country. However, these products are also available for sale through e-retailers, wherein the product prices are very competitive. Currently, there are speculations that the company might set up a manufacturing facility in the country in order to be more combative in this segment. Establishment of a plant in the country will certainly help to lower the prices of its tyres in India to a major level. Furthermore, it offers an attractive warranty period of 6 years (for passenger cars) and 5 years for lightweight and heavy duty truck tyres.
